SOURCE: primary hard disk drive 0 not found

Hi Kenneth,

If you just bought the laptop, then it is still covered by a warranty. Then all you have to do is contact the seller or directly to dell. This is the fastest and most appropriate way, and usually you will get one-to-one replacement (they will replace your laptop with new one). But, please make sure by contacting Dell.

Regards,

dC

Right click the hd in my computer

SOURCE: no internal hard disk found during booting when i am going to format

It is possible that the HD has failed completely. However, this is a relatively new laptop, so I would suspect that is not the case. Sometimes the HD will lose contact for one reason or another. This can usually be cured by removing the HD and reinstalling it, which will remove any crud from the contacts.

If the machine is still under warranty, call Dell support. They will walk you through diagnostics to determine the actual problem.
If you're not sure of the warranty status, go here:

SOURCE: no internal hard disk found

Hi there.
Use the Vista CD to create the new partition, but first you have to delete the old partition first, (the 220GB partition not the 10GB one because that will be the recovery partition).
Get a calculator and work out your new partition, for example 50GB is 50x1024MB so that will be 51200MB.
When you have deleted the 220GB partition select NEW and input your newly worked out partition and carry on from there, to activate the other partition just format it.

Please post back with the results and for anymore help if needed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

For last 2 weeks, whenever I tried to open my PC (Clone PC), HDD became start to make a noise, Tik-Tik-Tik. Windows cannot be loaded. I tried with a bootable CD, but it also fails to load any Drive. I


The tic tic tic noise is known as the tic of death. This hard drive is faulty especially when you go into the BIOS and the hard disk is not detected. This is why when you try to install Windows it cannot detect a hard disk.
The hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Its time you backup your data and contact Dell to get your hard drive replaced (in case your computer is in warranty) else order for a new hard drive compatible with your computer.

You will need your Windows CD that came with your computer, if you did not get it contact Dell about the same.

My hard drive is not displayed in my computer and a sound like tik tik tik tik comes from inside the drive


The hard drive is faulty. The tik sound is generally known as the "click of death".
You need to replace the hard drive, it cannot be repaired.
If you need to recover data from this hard drive, there are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

When put on the pc, tik tik sound coming from hard disk


Hello my friend.
This is indicates that you have hardware problem on your disk or is very dirty.
The only think you can try before buy new one is to scan it for errors and and do a defrag.
You go to MY COMPUTER
You select your hardrive LOCAL DISK C: etc
Right click-Properties-Tools Check now(Check for errors) Probaply will ask for a restart to scan it,so do a restart do start scanning your disk
For a defrag you do the same but in Tools you choose Defragment now(defrag now)

When put on the pc, tik tik sound coming from inside the HDD. and no HHD detect


Hard disk drive has gone bad. the ticking is the read heads hitting the stops hard. means that the disk might have been dropped.
If the ticking is musical in nature, like a waltz, this is caused by a virus that can activate after april 1st of any year.

Hi Michael,
Its possible to reformat your hard drive by using a DOS boot floppy disk or CD. You can create this disk on another pc then boot your pc from this disk. It will boot your pc to a DOS prompt, usually "C:>" from there you can create partitions, delete partitions and format the hard drive. The command for creating partitions is FDISK.exe. Make sure your boot disk has the FDISK.exe command on it.
Let me know if you require any further assistance regarding this.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

Acer has the tendancy to blow it's regulator circuit, it makes a fast tik-tik-tik sound, if so, send in for repairs, nothing you can do to fix it. JJ
